2017 Montes Purple Angel Carmenere Maipo Chile

$89.99 USD

Sappy, rooty aromas of baked black fruit, spice cake and chocolate announce a supremely ripe Carmenère (with 8% Petit Verdot) that's as lush, chewy and dense on the palate as possible without being overdone. Massive blackberry, cassis, chocolate and baking spice flavors finish toasty and rich. While this turns over no new stones, it's decidedly appealing. Drink through 2021.

This is perhaps the greatest Purple Angel ever. Full body, tight and compressed with an amazing texture and density. Fantastic fine tannins that are silky and polished. I love the energy and intensity. A blend of 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. One for the cellar but I can't wait to drink it again.
